Brooklyn trio BOYTOY have premiered a video for the song “Blazed”. The track is featured on the band’s self-titled, debut EP out on PaperCup Music. BOYTOY have a flurry of upcoming dates in Boston and New York this fall, including supporting Ty Segall, September 19, a Burger Records Cassette Day show on September 27, CBGB Festival, October 11, the CMJ Music Marathon, October 21-25, and supporting Drowners, October 28.
Featuring Saara Untracht Oakner and Glenn Van Dyke on vocals & guitar, with Matty Beans on drums, BOYTOY formed in 2013 after a 2am jam session provided instant sparks. They have been a regular on the New York scene since, building a loyal local following, releasing their first single, “Visits”, recorded at the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn, last Fall. The band made their SXSW debut in March, releasing BOYTOY in March, playing Northside Festival in June, and Gigawatts Festival in July.
